Cant maintain FPS

I have four amcrest 1080p 30fps cameras set up on ZM 1.30 and i cant seem to get the playback to be smooth 30fps. For the first few seconds of the playback it is definitely close to 30fps, and then after looking at the stills it drops to about 5fps. I have been lurking around for a week or two and c...
